Error code: 8884


I keep getting tree or server can't be found.
But I can browse the tree and context.

The log shows unknown error Error code: 8884.


NW6.0 Client 4.91sp2

Re: Error code: 8884

Is it trying to map a certain directory or folder? I have seen this
when someone was trying to map a drive that the user didn't have rights to.

Do you get this error if you log in as admin? Or does it happen on just
certain users?

Re: Error code: 8884


Logging is as Admin.

But even if you don't put a password in it comes back with the tree can't be
found not can not log you in so the user name and password are not checked
at this stage.

looks like it is having trouble reading the public directory.

Re: Error code: 8884

Is it a pure IP network?

Try specifying the IP address of a server during login

It seems related to 'Bad Address / Name Cache' in
the client.

for 4.9 SP1a and before you can disable the Bad name cache with the setting in
the client advanced properties and you disable the Bad address cache with the
following Registry setting then the problem goes away.
HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\Netware Workstation\Parameters Create a
Dword value called BadAddressCacheTimeout and set the value to 0 on 4.9 SP2
clients and beyond you will not need to set the registry key you can set the
Bad address cache off in the advanced client settings Bad Address Cache Timeout
= 0

Re: Error code: 8884

I will try it and let you know.

I did some testing I can log in if I turn off the login script. The re-login with it on.

I am on a pure IP network with working SLP I can see and browse all servers.
